Carl Hall has been rubbing his head at night, wondering what exactly he did, and why he did it.
The sixth-year Wichita State senior was known as the guy with the hair. The guy with the dreads, whose hair pestered opposing forwards when he shimmied during his post moves.
But he cut it all off.
Prior to the start of Wednesday's press conference, Hall, took out a comb and started combing his now clean-cut do.
"I haven't seen this person in five years," he said of the feeling. "I haven't got used to it yet."
Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall echoed the thoughts of his senior, saying, "I recruited him with that hair. I've never seen him without that hair."
Marshall said the team went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Salt Lake City on Tuesday night for a large team dinner.
"A lot of them said it was the best steak they'd ever put in their mouths," he said.
